Stayed with my wife and two children aged 11 and 13 for 3 nights. The hotel has bags of character and perhaps a little theatre to it's way of doing things. As other reviewers have correctly pointed out most rooms don't have en-suite . Rooms are simple and clean, recently re-decorated and varying slightly in size. The communal bathrooms and showers are clean and fully functional with abundant hot water at all times. I never had to queue for either a bath or shower. As with the bed rooms the fittings most look old but work fully and didn't leak in my experience. There is also a very useful drying room for kit and laundry. Residents have there own cosy sitting room and bar but of course can use the public areas too. There's a games room with table-tennis and pool table. The games room has wifi connection if you need it.
Meal times are fixed , breakfast 0830 to 0900 and dinner 1930. Staff went out of their way to help , always knew who we were and generally very friendly and warm. All spoke perfect English. The bar , the beers, wine list were simply the best out there. The place has bags of character, history and it is of course a formidable base for exploring Snowdonia. As with Paris , P-Y-G "is always worth it and you received return for whatever you brought it" ..we will be back.
